Why buy 1 jar of artisan pickles................when you can buy 12.


Cab flavored Pickles, excellent Idea in for 3

I wanted to try SOME of these pickles, but a case of 12 is too many. I guess I can always hope that Woot may sell individual jars in a Woot Plus or Woot-off.

I bought the Brooklyn Brine pickles the last time they were offered on Woot. That time it was a 3-pack of one each "Damn Spicy", "Spicy Maple Bourbon", & "Hop". While I haven't tried the "Hop" yet, the other two have to be the very best pickles I've ever had so far. (And I'm a hard-core spicy pickle lover.) Nice heat level without blowing the top of your head off, plus lots of flavor & a nice balance of acidity that doesn't leave you puckered.

That said, this is too much $$ & too many jars at one time for me. I'd much prefer a smaller offering like last time, with more choices.

I love a good pickle, but this is way too much money and way too many jars, along with a few I probably wouldn't care for (Bourbon, blech). Beets and carrots as well? Ugh. I'll stick to Claussen, which is pretty awesome for my easygoing palatte. And there's a couple of decent local joints that make a good pickle, and spicy ones as well...

Are these Kosher? If so, can you tell me what it says on your kosher certificate?

I find your lack of faith in pickles disturbing.

For a good explanation why all of you are expecting pickles to be $2.97 for a huge jar, read this:
http://www.fastcompany.com/47593/wal-mart-you-dont-know

Good pickles need good ingredients. The vegetables sit in a jar with vinegar for months and months at a time. Think about all that yucky stuff stewing in with your pickles over the course of a year. Blah.

Pickles are supposed to last. So why do so many pickles need preservatives?

These don't. Good ingredients, brewing and brining.

12 jars cost $100+S&H from Brooklyn Brine, so in terms of market value this isn't bad. Maybe not a 5-alarm woot - but not bad.

As far as quantity: eat half of them over the next year, and give away the other half every once in a while to a foodie.

As i said last time, it isn't the damn spicy you have to watch out for. The spicy bourbon is the true hot pickle (damn scotch bonnet)

Also, I just wanted to mention that last time I purchased these (August) I went in for 3, so 9 jars of pickles was $79.

This deal has free beets, carrots, and saurkraut in my book.

I'm a big fan of these pickles ever since I got some for Christmas a while back. Yes, they're pricy, but they're well worth it.

I love Ba-Tampte, they're a good everyday pickle, but these are something special. If Ba-Tampte is a $10 bottle of Jack, these are a small-batch, well-aged single barrel bourbon. Fantastic for gifts, or for yourself if you feel like you're worth top-shelf stuff.

Does anyone know the sugar content of each of the varieties (namely the Maples)?

I'm going hardcore no-sugar, but I love pickles, and am sorely tempted.

Love pickles, REALLY want the sauerkraut, hop and carrots, but since I detest sweet pickles and 8 of these talk about "sweet" or "semi-sweet"--no thanks. Also $85 for 12 jars seems pretty over-the-top. Any chance of single type sales later?

In general, I cannot STAND bread and butter or other sweet pickles. These are an exception, though; they're great on crackers with a bit of goat cheese, or on a spicy sausage.

We've tried just about all of these and think they're ok. You can make your own and they'll taste better.

This company leans toward the strong flavors. When they say something is spicy, they mean it. And this is coming from someone who puts sriracha in EVERYthing. ;)

Their chipotle carrots are popular with my daughter...when they aren't too spicy. Yes, the different batches are inconsistent. That's ok, though. It simply means you're not getting your pickles from a McD's.

All in all, I'd say, if you haven't tried them yet, go for it. Just save the juice to make your own batch.

by the time I ate 12 jars of pickles, I would hate them. 3 jars would interest way more people, not counting the 80.00 for them

Purchased these the last time they were sold. The maple and hop pickles were OK, only could eat a few in a sitting. The spicy ones were great. In the end I think the price is too high, but that's what you get when you purchase "artisan" products.

I've had these before when William Sonoma was demoing them, and they were delicious.

Kinda of interesting how 80 bucks worth of pickles can generate a lot of conversation. For some reason, I've enjoyed reading this thread today (& the one about the scariest sea creature over on plain/regular WOOT).

As someone who makes their own pickles, I'd like to defend this price.

For one, three of the jars are 24oz, or a quart. That's a healthy size for pickles, not to mention the weight of the glass. The rest are 16oz, which doesn't give you a lot, but these are special items. As a sauerkraut fanatic, I'd want 24oz of that.

For another, making pickles is a LOT OF WORK! Sure, you're working with large batches, but you're not working with 5000 gallon vats, either. Also, pickle brine is NOT NICE to your skin! I spent a week with no fingerprints after loading 16 jars of hot garlic pickles, but forgot to wear gloves.

Yes, they're expensive? But you're getting a lot of love in those jars. Treasure and savor them.

I'm sure mine is an unusual complaint, but b/c there's actual whiskey in the whiskey-flavored pickles, I can't order them for my deployed friends as they violate good old Gen Order #1. This sucks, as I can think of a half-dozen guys who'd love to sit down and savor these pickled veggies after 10 hours in a bomb suit. Le sigh.

Woot was I thinking? Whar was my head?

Too many, give me a choice of some for say 30 bucks, A year or so ago I bought the "Barrel" of olives, threw more than half away, just couldn't eat that much olives, this seems the same.
Now if they had Cab flavored.........

I love Japanese pickles, since they make them out of daikon, carrots, eggplant, and other veggies, and they tend to be more on the mild side. But I love cucumber ones too. Going to give these a try, pickles for a year!
